What to look forward to this weekend at the Italian GP?
It should be quite an intriguing battle between Hamilton, Bottas and Verstappen for the win, with all three looking solid so far this season. Ferrari are struggling at their home nation, where they have two more races to go this season, at Mugello and Imola. Red Bull did not have the best of sessions, and would be keen to improve on it over the next two days.
As usual, the mid-teams’ battle will be between Racing Point, AlphaTauri, McLaren and Renault. The qualifying session is later today, with the final race on Sunday for the Italian GP.
